I got to Abilene at 3 am in the morning. Drove more that 1000 miles...........

My buddy lives on the outskirts so internet w/ my sprint card is to weak to downloasd pics.
I will be in dallas tomorrow and will get them up by tuesday.
Also, Had to get to Abilene in one day.
Had to drive 75mph most of the day.

I still beat 30mpg over the 1100 miles that have been recorded w/ fillups. Even though the scangaiuge is pretty close, I want to report actual fillups. I've got a fill up scheduled for tomorrow. With 93 octane.
I will also say that new mexico had 86,88 & 90 octane. I got hte 90 but the car runs best on 91. THe car can tell the difference. My last 3 hours were torture because the scangauge was showing the ign at 29 instead of 31-35. And the mpg was barely 29 at 55mph. Also the drive was all 'downhill' from the high plains.
MetroMPG: "Get the MPG gauge - it turns driving into a fuel & money saving game."

First: ScangaugeII

Second: Grille Block

Third: Full underbelly pan

Fourth: rear skirts and 30.4mpg on trip!
